With the van running, if you press the sunroof tilt button, will the glass move at all? Try both directions a few times.. Also.. How many miles on the van?

It's a 2013 not 2014. No movement at all pushing button either way. 63k mileage.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Sun roof issues are tricky. Especially if you need to access the sunroof motor. .. Do you hear any motor movement what so ever? I am trying to determine if you hear just a slight movement. That could indicate that the motor is good, the glass maybe jammed.

Even tried with force and my wife pushing the button and it would not budge.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Well, the way the sunroof is designed, with the sunroof motor installed, it locks the cables and pull and open the glass.

how handy are you? cause the head liner will most likely need to be removed to look at the sunroof operation and test it.

Can't hear any motor sounds at all. However, the front sunroof that works has a motor that is silent as well. I'm not opposed to digging into it to test something.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Give me a min to get you info if you like to try to take this on yourself..

I am going to warn you. To remove the head liner.. The pillar covers will need to be removed and they are a 1 time use. So they would need to be replaced regardless. This is cause of the air bag system that they are designed that way.

Hang on..

Try those steps and see if we get any movement from the rear roof

Did those steps work?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The steps listed seem to require some movement of the glass, and that is not happening. I will try it again, but I have no tilt and no open/close function. I'm not sure I want to mess with pulling the headliner off. Wife would kill me if I break it.
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

I hear you. I just thought i would share that and see if something would operate before droping the head liner.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Reading the instructions again, I really can't get past step one because he says to set the glass in the tilt position. Life is so much easier with my 91 jeep wrangler....
Nissan Mechanic: Jay, Nissan Technician replied 2 years ago

Hehe... i hear you.

I think it wants the front roof tilted up
